My father was killed a week ago in an auto accident. He was slowing to make a left turn and was struck from behind, forced into oncoming traffic and struck. He was ejected from the vehicle and killed. The person who hit him will likely be charg...
I am so sorry for your loss. If your father had underinsured motorist coverage with his auto insurance, you may be able to make a claim in addition to the liability claim against the at-fault party. An estate must be opened in order to settle the wrongful death claim. If he did not have a will naming an executor of his estate, then you or your brother would most likely be appointed by the probate court as the administrator of his estate. A wrongful death claim is for the benefit for your father's next of kin. If he survived for some time after the collision, he may also have a survivorship claim. While this forum is a helpful starting place, it is best that you contact a qualified attorney to further discuss all the issues involved. My condolences to you and your family.See question

With regard to treatment, you should get whatever treatment you believe you need and follow the advice of your doctors. You may want to wait to settle to ensure that you will not have any more injuries or damages resulting from the accident. Once you settle, that's it.See question

You should not be liable for hitting the vehicle in front of you under these circumstances. It sounds like you have a Worker's Compensation claim and a person injury claim. You should contact a personal injury attorney to discuss your options. Best of luck!See question

Of course, a lawsuit can be filed against the at-fault party. However, that may not be the best course of action at this point. If the at-fault party does not have car insurance, you can file an uninsured motorist claim against your own insurance company if there is independent, corroborative evidence the the other driver was the proximate cause of the accident. Sit down with your attorney and ask your questions. Best of luck!See question

If your health insurance company pays for accident related bills, then your health insurance company can assert a subrogation claim against the liability insurance company to be paid back for these expenses. The liability settlement offer should include money to pay the health insurance subrogation claim. So as a practical matter, the money to pay back your health insurance company comes out of the settlement. Most settlement offers are "all-inclusive," meaning any subrogation claims are included in the settlement offer. Hope this helps. As others have suggested, sit down with your current attorney and ask your questions.See question

My car 2009 cadillac dts. My insurance company paid me less than what i owe. I was told the at fault insurance should pay me full price. is this so?
The insurance company owes you the actual cash value of the car. If the outstanding balance of your loan is more than the ACV, the insurance is not required to pay it off. Check to see if you purchased GAP insurance from either the car dealer or loan company. GAP insurance will pay off the balance of the loan in the event you owe more than what the car is worth. Best of luck!See question
